The place is filthy and I experienced the worse service ever. Everything is not working there.

One this establishment caters for "gentlemen" who has companions in the evening. I was not informed that this is how "things are run there". On check in the lady who works there made a point to loudly announcing "ahh you are the only woman here" - wow I felt like she was doing it on purpose. Attracted attention that was much unwanted.The room was below substandard, the TV has a bad resolution, remote did not work. No spoons in the room so you cannot stir your coffee. The shower does not work, bed side lamps is missing and no other lighting except for the small LED lights attached to the bed...
